Sriracha Lime Salmon
Tangy, spicy and easy to throw together for a yummy and healthy dinner.
I like the frozen salmon from Costco... a lot.
It's so easy, and the price it great.
I used to feel bad about it.
About eating "farmed" salmon, about being all about the convenience and the price, about not paying more for fresh salmon "because it was so much tastier".
However, I wasn't convinced that fresh actually tasted so much better, so I felt pretty good when I read this recent article in the Seattle Times about a "taste-off" of different salmons, fresh and frozen.
Don't worry about adding the honey or agave to this mixture, it doesn't add sweetness it just highlights the other flavors without being too overpowering.
2 tsp sriracha hot sauce
2 tsp agave syrup, or honey
1 lime, juiced
2 tsp soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp ginger, freshly grated
1 Tbsp cilantro, finely minced
2 salmon fillets
Add salmon fillets to a ziploc bag, or a low pan. Add all the other ingredients and combine. Add over salmon. Let sit for about 30-60 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees in a glass baking dish coated with cooking spray, or oil. Add fish, plus any marinade from the bag, and bake for 12-15 minutes.
Serve over rice, or quinoa, or even sauteed napa cabbage, like I did.
